This article is about the region of the Nehellium Galaxy where Kastrenzo's factions exist
The Gold sector, is a galactic grouping of some 400 star systems across 4 star clusters that lies between the Western Arms and The Shire , It is largely Dominated by the Galacian Imperiya however the sector is embroiled in a clusterfuck of biblical porportions, a conflict that has been ongoing since the mid R.1990s. As a result, few factions have stood the test of time, but regardless of their allegiance, the minifigs of the Gold Cluster are hands down some of the most capable footsoldiers in the galaxy as a result of perpetual conflict all over the region.
The sector had only ever once been a single unified entity. Due to complications with their initial star colonization the sector actually ended up playing host to multiple factions of independent colonists.. the sector was oly whole for a short period after these factions were forcibly unified.
While the sector is infamous for its infighting with many factions in play. It is nowhere near as divided as it was in the past. Prior to the reunification of R.2014 the entire sector was essentially filled with many independent nations. While they shared a common origin these mini figs had more differences than similarities. Each region of the sector was it's own self contained and self governed nation. Isolation and otherness created this demographic issue only military conquest made any headway in sewing it up
Origins and recent History
When the minifigs of Elkoss became spacefaring, they colonized a few systems close to their homeworld, Caspia being the first. However after the first wave they were unable to find habitable worlds in range of their ships, so they began shooting long range arks with minifigs in hypersleep in random directions from the original colonies. The original colonies remained a part of the homeworld's empire, but these Arks, at the time ended up landing on worlds far outside communications range. The arks that survived ended up on their own, and one by one, multiple independent colonies propped up all over the main star cluster, while they shared the same history, they would develop their own cultures, and some even colonized other systems of their own.
Two notable exceptions, that were not apart of the core worlds, nor colonized by the "Seeder Arks" were he Zircon and Vincent systems. These systems had primitive civilizations both in TL5 Stage, they were both eventually assimilated into the old Empire.
By the time that these cultures began to meet each other, they had taken control of what is now known as the Zolotoy Cluster. Some of these cultures got along and traded, others fought, and some were even wiped out. Eventually, the more numerous and advanced core worlds negotiated, acquired, and subjugated all of the lost colonies back into their empire. Just like before, the transition was smoother in some places than others. The most Rebellious being those in the extreme west and south
In R.2011, The entire Zolotoy Cluster with the exception of he territories around the Ulvarattan, Malavinas and Kamchatkan systems were under the control of the Elkossian Empire as it reached it's peak of territorial expansion, compared to present time, many of the colonies were considerably smaller and less developed in R.2011. After the Great Peach war of R.2011/2012, Some colonies were completely exterminated, and most lost contact with one another, left to their own devices again, the more powerful colonies that survived started to do their own thing again while the capital rebuilt.
Per usual, when the Elkoss based capital came knocking the second time, some rejoined, and others rejected, of course this offended the capital, and it eventually led to several "rebel" states that inhabit the cluster today.
In R.2017 three more Clusters were discovered and various powers laid the claim of discovery, general consensus was that these small clusters be added to the Gold Sector
Historically, the ruling power of the sector has traditionally been seated in the Elkoss or Caspian systems most of the time. In the earliest days, after the wave of seeder ships, the sector was divided by several distinct cultures, After the cultures were reunited, the Galacian Republik used a system of Administrative "Prefectures" with many of the colonies in each prefecture having a specialized and focused industry.
By the time of the second Imperiya, these subdivisions were done away with, the core worlds were taken control of by the Emperor and the senate, while most of the other colonies were divided up and handed out to loyal Military generals and their families to rule over as they saw fit with moderate imperial oversight.
The Outer Haven Incident would set in motion a chain of events that would turn the sector on it's head. The Imperial Magikstrate blew a covert operation on Outer Haven, which in turn started a short albeit incredibly destructive war between the then Iron Symphony against the M-Throne Empire and Magikstrate. This was known as the Arhus Crisis. During the Crisis Alex Shulga would Depose Jim Lahey, toppling the Galacian Republik and establishing the Galacian Imperiya
Elsewhere, Volhinya invaded Outer Haven, trying to take advantage of the situation after the Galacian Republik collapsed. Although the superior Volhinyan forces should have wiped the floor with the Cultists, Karl Magadan II, the monarch of Volhinya, was killed by a mortar and the entire Campaign was a failure, Volhinya fell into a Civil War of it's own in the aftermath of the death of the Kynaz

Was the first direct successor of the Elkossian Empire until it was wiped out from the inside by the now Galacian Imperiya, After the Coup, GR civilians and soldiers had few options, Join the Imperiya, Fight and Die, Flee south and join the Conglomerate or another Nation.. Or go into hiding. While the Republik is effectively dead, rumors persist of an underground rebellion movement, and that the "Galacian Civil War" is not over.|

|Peacheneg Armata Coalition (PAC)||A Signifigant, developed Peach nation that was founded by Peach descendants of the factions that invaded the Gold Sector in R.2011, they maintain a fragile relationship with other Peach Factions, they were dragged into war when the Cherhovna Bryhada accused them of supporting the KPR. who were actually being supported by the 45th Union alone.|
|Worker's Army of the Red Line||A faction of Space Miners originally from Volhinya, who with the assistance of the neighboring USSSR, rebelled against their royal masters and who seek to overthrow Volhinya under the Communist banner. They don't control any planets, but a "line" of massive space stations seized from Volhinya and Galacia|
|Syndikat||A galaxy spanning criminal empire of Pirates, Raiders, Mercenaries, Slavers and other shitlords, based in the Western Gold sector, they operate all over the Western arms.|
|Chernarussian Star Federation||A communist state that is believed to have originated from remnants of the former Mozorovan socialists, The Chernarussians emerged in mid R.2018 just when everyone thought the Gold Sector couldn't get any more cluster-fucked. They immediately became contenders for the "Biggest threat in the west" title, contested with the Peach Armata Coalition|
|Kopachy Peach Republic||Peach Insurgents and Guerillas who fight to secure more territory for the 45th Union, They claim to be apart of the "Peach Revolutionary Army" who are a Galaxy spanning network of Peach fighters looking to expand the influence of the 45th Union|
|Tusk DMZ||The systems of Tusk and Kirov are under an AN enforced DMZ, occupied by a joint AN-Galacian police force known as Militsiya. officially they are apart of the Galacian Imperiya but with stipulations, namely that these systems were surrendered as part of the Maripol treaty, that ended hostilities between the Imperiya, and the then Rebels, (now the Systems Conglomerate.Most Colonists here are actually still pro-Rebel, and they formed several militias who fight against Pro-Imperiya Militias, with the police trying to maintain the peace. For all intents and purposes, The Tusk DMZ might as well be considered an entity seperate from both Galacia and the Conglomerate|

Clusters, Regions and Systems
The Gold Sector is actually 4 seperate star clusters.
- Zolotoy - The main cluster, which the rest of the sector also takes it's name from. 90% of the Sector's minifigs live here
- Balkani - An expansion cluster that is situated in the Northwestern quarter of the sector, It is sparsely populated and largely controlled by the Peacheneg Armata Coalition
- Zapad - Recentley discovered in late R.2017, situated in the Southwestern quarter of the sector and roughly the same size as Balkani, Zapad was thought to be unoccupied until contact was made with the Chernarussian Star Federation who control most of the cluster
- Vostok - Discovered around the same time as Zapad, but considered to be a seperate cluster, Situated in the Southeast, Vostok is the last free space in the sector, with no faction or entity having any established colonies or bases there, however this does not mean the sector is uninhabited, many Hodgepodge and other unafilliated settlements are dotted across the region, and the Syndikat runs wild in this lawless space. Galacia, Chernarus, and Zagoria are all competing to grab the last free space in the sector here in a colonization rush
Gold sector stellar cartographers normally name a system after it's principal colony. The stars in each colonized systems are Usually named after the colony with a suffix at the end. Such as Caspia-Alpha, The suffixes generally have no meaning or signifigance other than seperating them from the colony itself. Within each cluster. Star systems are usually grouped by constellation or hyperspace lanes into the stellar equivalent of a region or a starfaring nations province. They are as follows
|Galychna||Central||Elkoss, Protox, Keyiv, Lingsha, Svoboda, Vinzen, Caspia, Zarkipatt|

They are under the control of various factions as no one power controls all border crossings.|
|Unincorporated Systems||~||Malvina, Hanza, Wick, Tikhar, Augusta, Korbat, Volga, Arbat, Ixtar, Elshout, Yar||Most of these systems are unexplored|
(*) - Denotes a system or region that did not originate from a Seeder Ark, and was inhabited by a minifig civilization that was completely foreign to the Elkossian colonists across the sector.
